Hiawatha, Kan., March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- An exciting step forward for the mission of making hands-free farming available to every farmer, Outback Guidance, a brand of AgJunction, Inc. (TSX: AJX), sent the first shipments of REBEL™ all-in-one solutions out of their Hiawatha, Kan., facility on Thursday, March 1.

 

Farmers will begin receiving their REBEL systems for a more efficient, profitable and data-driven 2018 spring planting season.

 

“Finally, all farmers – even those with smaller farms or older equipment – have access to an all-in-one autosteering solution,” says Jeff Morris, vice president and chief marketing officer, AgJunction. “With the first REBEL kits making their way to our customers across North America, we can’t wait to see how this solution helps farmers improve their productivity and profitability.”

 

REBEL is a hassle-free, hands-free autosteering solution that represents the first step in the Hands-Free Farm movement to make autosteering accessible to every farm and every farmer. REBEL includes everything a farmer needs in one package to bring the latest innovations in autosteering to the equipment they already own. At a low starting price of $5,995, REBEL gives payback in the first season with an average of $15/acre savings (Source: USDA ARMS).

 

Customers can check out if REBEL is a fit for their tractor and farm and find their local dealer at www.HandsFreeFarm.com.  Complete kits to fit almost any tractor and built-in Wi-Fi for over-the-air software updates allow farmers to always stay current. Plus, advanced features like automated headland turns, path planning and control software ensure customers are ready for whatever challenges their fields present.

 

“Simply put, REBEL is hassle-free, hands-free farming that is simple to buy, easy to own, and perfect for all farms,” Morris says. “We look forward to continuing to advance the Hands-Free Farm revolution.”
